The expression ‘in good standing’ shall apply:

a. to those Constituent Organizations from which the IPA has received the dues of all their Members in full by 31 December for any calendar year, or
b. to those Members of Constituent Organizations from whom the IPA has received their dues in full by 31 December for any calendar year, or
c. to those Direct Members from whom the IPA has received their dues in full by 31 December for any calendar year, or
d. to any Constituent Organizations or Direct Members who received and complied with special payment arrangements agreed with the Treasurer, whereby some or all of their dues for the calendar year or any prior years are not yet payable on 31 December.  A Constituent Organization which does not comply with special payment terms agreed with the Treasurer will not be regarded as ‘in good standing’.
